update
LOS ANGELES One of the IMAX theaters that initially declined to show the film "Volcanoes of the Deep Sea," with its references to evolution, has now decided to run it because of the controversy it has stirred.
Van Romans, director of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, says he received 75 letters and e-mails asking him to screen the film.

Romans says the museum originally decided against doing so because other documentaries were better. Several other science museum executives also say test audiences rated the film poorly.

looks like controversy is working to the advantage of the film eh?

added by edit: it looks like "ALIENS OF THE DEEP 3D" is available here but not volcanoes. :(

second edit: check out http://www.volcanoesofthedeepsea.com/index_flash.html

and
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0331068/

Re: update
Cool. Thanks.

While there is a link to 'trailers' it only reveals a Coming Soon note. Shame.

So it seems that there are two films on this topic.

Re: update
actually there are two different "volcanoes of the deep" the other is a PBS Nova video. I think the aliens one involves disney, so I don't know how good the science is (given the disney track record ...)

Re: update
Science entertainment is one of my trigger buttons. I constantly find myself tuning to the Discovery or History channel, finding assumptions in the presentation, then tuning to a rerun of something like the X-Files.

Re: update
Stick with PBS if you want good science programs.

I really love all of them; NOVA, National Geographic Frontiers, Nature, although I am disappointed that they have become so fast moving and flashy these days. I used to love it when there was a long-lasting shot of some great lioness on the hunt with no announcer talking.
